Scaramucci Out?

My BBC alerts just told me that Scaramucci has been removed as White House communications director. He gave up his business and his wife filed for divorce to get this job. He caused Sean Spicer to resign and got Reinhold [Reince is a nickname] Priebus axed, and now he’s gone in 10 days.

The Guardian and CNN have chimed in the same news. Could be real, or just another ‘fake news’ operation by the White House, or General Kelly is taking his new job seriously.

Update: The Harvard Law School alumni directory lists Scaramucci as “deceased”. That’s cold. It was just a job.

Rid of job and spouse in one fell swoop… lucky guy!

Mooch is out because he failed to fire Bannon Had he fired Bannon he then would have followed Bannon out. Beside the Profaner of the United States does not like to be out-profaned by a mere potty mouth.

BTW, IMHO, Chrome works much better on iPhone than Safari.

Well, he’ll have time to go to court and watch his ex-wife’s attorney take away everything he owns. It will give the NYC tabloids something to watch.

Trump knew what was going to happen with Spicer and Priebus when he brought in ‘Mooch’. Kelly probably made getting rid of ‘Mooch’ a discussion item in his job interview. Trump wants Kelly to do the firing, because he really isn’t up to unless it is in his ‘script’ for TV.

At least part of it, Shirt, was the face time that Scaramucci was getting on TV. Drumpf is the ‘star of the show’, and doesn’t like it when others get the spotlight.

I’ll give Chrome a shot. Steve.

The chatter on Twitter is that this was probably a big part of the reason he’s gone:

Anthony Scaramucci Seems to Have a Taste For Adult Content – Gay Content Too

Probably explains the divorce too. 😉 😀

Trump doesn’t seem to have the guts to actually fire people, so he uses surrogates. Mooch was brought in to fire Priebus, and then Kelly was brought in to fire Mooch. Now he wants Sessions to move and take Kelly’s old job at Homeland Security, so he can appoint a new attorney general to fire Mueller and end the Russian investigation.

The word from people who know the Scaramuccis is that she couldn’t stand Trump, and had no intention of leaving NYC to live near and socialize with the Trump family. She apparently warned him, but he did it anyway, and now he has no company, no job, and no wife. To Hell with him.

Apparently he couldn’t do the fandango. Very very frightening. 🙂

Yes, he fostered a resurgence of Queen play/sales as younger people tried to figure out what in hell the reference to fandango meant.

OTOH there was also the wife and company he lost to get the job in the first place – a loser all around 😈
